Rat Race

by Dane Allred

Getting better’s overrated

Usually, it’s overstated

When I get better

So do you

And then I have some more to do.

This endless cycle of better and best

Puts even the best of us to the test.

When does this rat race ever stop?

Why won’t you quit? So I can drop

My act about my betterment

And just enjoy retirement?

I will quit if you will, too.

What’s that? You have more to do?

Let’s get back on this treadmill fast

And hope our feets and shoes will last.

Ready? Set? Go!
